{ June Scrapbook Stamping Guest Designer }

I was asked by sweet and talented Nichol Magouirk to be one of the Guest Designes for June's Scrapbook Stamping class at 2Peas. The June class features Coloring in Stamped Images.

Here is what I created.

For this layout I used Technique Tuesday stamps and Perspectives collection patterned paper
I stamped a banner from Message in a Banner stamp set and  used Koh-I-Noor watercolor paints to color in my stamped images. 

I just used plain white cardstock because I knew I was going to cut out the images and watercolor paper is a little thicker. Using watercolor you can color your images to match your layout. 
The stars patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye.

For the celebrate from Kids Are Cool by Ali Edwards I stamped it on white cardstock and used Shimmerz Pearlz to paint over the top. I was trying to paint each letter, but that was taking too long. I tried painting the cardctock first and then stamping over the top, but the black ink was not as bright. I love how it turned out. I cut the word out and adhered it over a journaling note from Perspectives collection patterned paper. The "boy" is stamped in Cayan ink from Clearsnap. 

The journaling stamp is from Who What Where by Ali Edwards stamp set and I stamped the date from A Date with Ali  by Ali Edwards stamp set.

Nichol has a video on how she created her layout and colored her stamped images. You can participate in the challenge and be entered to win a gift certificate from 2Peas. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.
